  Indigenous flowers North Dakota

North Dakota is home to a plethora of flower species. The best known of these species is the Rosa Arkansana or Prairie Rose. This indigenous flower of North Dakota is well known simply because it also serves as the state’s official flower. Using its scientific name could lead to confusion as the state name “Arkansas” suddenly pops into mind. This is primarily because of the wide distribution of the North Dakota indigenous flower. This wide distribution causes people to call it by different names, leading to what is called a “synonymy”. In fact, its common name of “Prairie Rose” is also often used to refer to the Meadow Rose (Rosa blanda) but that is another story.

The Prairie Rose is a deciduous shrub. This means that it, like many trees and plants, shed its leaves periodically. The shrub can grow up to 1.2 meters tall. It can often be seen on roadsides and pastures. Actually, it can be considered a weed by some people, because it is quite invasive.

However, there are still those who consider this North Dakota indigenous flower for ornamental horticulture. This might be because of the aesthetic qualities of the pink blossoms. This North Dakota indigenous flower usually blooms around June or July. The blossoms themselves have diameters of 2 to 5 centimeters, and are hermaphrodite. This means that each flower of the Prairie Rose has both male and female parts.

The fruit of this North Dakota indigenous flower comes in the form of hips. The fruit is often used for the preparation of syrups and tea. This is because the hips are actually rich in Vitamin C. Caution should be taken when the fruit is ingested, as there are tiny hairs surrounding the seeds that could irritate the mouth and digestive track. The seed, however, is a great source of Vitamin E. in order to take advantage of this nutrition, you might want to grind the seeds and add them to foods.

As said before, many people consider this North Dakota indigenous flower as a weed. This means that the plant can pretty much grow anywhere. It can tolerate light or heavy soil. It can grow in acidic or alkaline soil, although it does do better in the former. If you choose to cultivate this plant, all you need to be concerned about is placing it correctly and making sure that there’s enough moisture to keep the plant alive. You might also want to keep it planted close to garlic in order to prevent disease and insects from afflicting your plant.

If you are thinking about planting this North Dakota indigenous flower, you have the option of using seeds or cuttings. Many people suggest that you use cuttings for the planting of the Prairie rose, as seeds take up to two years to germinate.
